Intro:
    P.M.|                 P.M.|                 P.M.....|
e-|---------------------------------------------------------|
B-|---------------------------------------------------------|
G-|---------------------------------------------------------|
D-|---------0---2-----------------0------0------------------|
A-|---------0---2------------------------0------------------|
E-|-0---0-----------------0---0-----------------0-0-0-0-0---|


Riff 1: I just can't understand the rhythm of this guitar-line.

    P.M....|           P.M...|      P.M
e-|--------------------------------------------|
B-|--------------------------------------------|
G-|--------------------------------------------|
D-|---------0---2--------------0---2---3---3---|
A-|---------0---2--------------0---2-0-3---3---|
E-|-0---0-0------------0---0-0-----------------|       


This is played over Riff 1:

e-|-----------------------------------|
B-|-----------------------------------|
G-|-----------------------9---12-11---|
D-|-9------11-----12------7---10-9----|
A-|-7------9------10------------------|
E-|-----------------------------------|

Verse riff:
        P.M.......|     P.M.......|     P.M.......|     
e-|-------------------------------------------------
B-|-------------------------------------------------
G-|-------------------------------------------------

A-|-2---------------2---------------2---------------
E-|-0h2-2-2-2-2-2-2-0h2-2-2-2-2-2-2-0h2-2-2-2-2-2-2-


-----------------|
-----------------|
-----------------|
-5-\-4---2---4---|
-3-\-2---0---2---|
-----------------|

First is the verse riff played 4 times while Kirk
does the solo, then it goes to this:

    P.M.....|
e-|-------------|
B-|-------------|
G-|-------------|
D-|-4-4-4-4-4---|
A-|-2-2-2-2-2---|
E-|-------------|

And then it's time for the first verse with the verse riff:

 I don't know how to live trough this hell
 Woken up, I'm still locked in this shell
 Frozen soul, frozen down to the core
 Break the ice, I can't take anymore

Chorus:
                  P.M                   P.M.   P.M
e-|--------------------------------------------------------
B-|--------------------------------------------------------
G-|--------------------------------------------------------
D-|--------------------------------------------------------
A-|-6-7------6-7-----2------6-7---6-7-------7-----4-5------
E-|-4-5------4-5---0-0------4-5---4-5---0-0-5---0-2-3------

          P.M.   P.M     P.M
--------------------------------------|

--------------------------------------|
--------------------------------------|
-4-5----------5-----6-7-----7-8-7-7---|
-2-3------0-0-3---0-4-5---0-5-6-5-5---|

   Freezing
   Can't move at all
   Screaming
   Can't hear my call
   I am dying to live
   Cry out
   I'm trapped under ice

Then it's time for another solo and another verse:
                         
 Crystallized, as I lay here and rest
 Eyes of glass stare directly at death
 From deep sleep I have broken away
 No one knows, no one hears what I say

Then again, a chorus and then to this riff:

Riff 2:
                            P.M...........|
e-|-------------------------------------------|
B-|-------------------------------------------|
G-|-------------------------------------------|
D-|-------------------------------------------|
A-|-7-8-7-8-8---5-5---7-7---3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3---|
E-|-5-6-5-6-6---3-3---5-5---1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1---|

Then you play this, 2 times
Riff 3:
        P.M.|                P.M.

G-|----------------------------------------

     P.M.|   |.|        P.M.......................|
----------------------------------------------------|
----------------------------------------------------|
----------------------------------------------------|
-----------9----7-----------------------------------|
-2---------7----5---8-------8-------8-------8-------|
-0---0-0-0----0-----6---6-6-6---6-6-6---6-6-6---6-6-|

Followed by riff 3: 
                          
                                              P.M.
e-|---------------------------------------------------------|
B-|---------------------------------------------------------|
G-|-9---9---9------7---7---7------5---5---4-----------------|
D-|-9---9---9------7---7---7------5---5---4-------2---------|
A-|-7---7---7------5---5---5------3---3---2---5-4-2---------|
E-|-------------------------------------------3-2-0---------|


 Scream from my soul
 Fate, mystified
 Hell, forever more

Then back to riff 3 again 4 times and then this:


    P.M......................................................|
e-|------------------------------------------------------------
B-|------------------------------------------------------------
G-|------------------------------------------------------------
D-|------------------------------------------------------------
A-|-8-------8-------8-------8-------7-------7-------7-------7--
E-|-6---6-6-6---6-6-6---6-6-6---5-5-5---5-5-5---5-5-5---5-5-5--


 P.M..........................................................|
---------------------------------------------------------------
---------------------------------------------------------------
---------------------------------------------------------------
---------------------------------------------------------------
-----7-------7-------7-------7---------------------------------
-5-5-5---5-5-5---5-5-5---5-5-5---5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-

P.M.   P.M.
---------------------|
---------------------|
---------------------|
-----------3-2-------|
-5-3-2-0-------3-2---|
---------3-----------|

Then it starts all over again with a solo and a verse:

 No release from my cryonic state
 What is this? I've been stricken by fate
 Wrapped up tight, cannot move, can't break free
 Hand of doom has a tight grip on me

Verse 3 is followed by 2 choruses and after that, this,
played 3 times:

    P.M............|
e-|--------------------------------|
B-|--------------------------------|
G-|--------------------------------|
D-|--------------------------------|
A-|-----------------7---8-8--7-7---|
E-|-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5---6-6--5-5---|

Then this:

e-|-------------------|
B-|-------------------|
G-|-------------------|
D-|-------------------|
A-|-8-8---5-5---7-7---|
E-|-6-6---3-3---5-5---|

And the verse riff again 4 times. On the last time
you end up with this:

    P.M.........|
e-|-----------------|
B-|-----------------|
G-|-----------------|
D-|-4-4-4-4-4-------|
A-|-2-2-2-2-2---4---|
E-|-------------2---|

That's it lads!

as a guitar player, but then you play....
